Pokémon Stadium Arrives on Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack April 12th

The N64 classic, Pokémon Stadium, will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on April 12th, via the N64 app and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.

Stadium boasts a Pokémon League for you to partake in, where you can use rental Pokémon to battle your way to the top. Multiplayer is also available in the form of 2 to 4 player Pokémon battles, or for some more frantic party action, there’s a selection of fantastic party games!

The party games were a staple of many a childhood, and memories are sure to come flooding back as you try to memorise the Clefairy music lesson or bounce your way to the top in Magikarp Jump.

This version of Pokémon Stadium, like other NSO titles, boasts online play! So those frantic party game sessions, or intense Pokémon battles, can now be played with your friends all over the world!

But every silver lining has a cloud (wait, what?), and this version does not feature any way to transfer Pokémon from a Game Boy title to the game.

Battle your way to victory, in honour of the recently retired Ash and Pikachu, from April 12th!

Here is an overview of the game...

"The original 151 Pokémon are here, and the roar of the stadium is calling your name – but do you have what it takes to be the very best?

Starting April 12, the Pokémon Stadium game is bringing thrilling Pokémon battles to the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library for everyone with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership. Originally released on the Nintendo 64 system in 2000, this battle arena game features every Pokémon from the Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version games alongside a bevy of solo and multiplayer modes designed to test your mettle as a Pokémon Trainer!

In Pokémon Stadium, you can battle it out solo with your chosen team of six Pokémon across four tournaments in Stadium mode or run it back against Kanto’s elite Trainers in Gym Leader Castle. Winning in either of these modes will secure a spot for your champion team in Victory Palace, but completing both modes will unlock a final battle to challenge even the ultimate Trainer.

Looking for some multiplayer free-form fun? Compete in no-holds-barred battles with friends in the 1-4 player Free Battle mode, or party it up with a collection of nine minigames in the Kids Club. It might be called the Kids Club, but even seasoned Trainers may feel the heat in the Sushi-Go-Round kitchen, or after reaching new heights in Magikarp’s Splash!"
